Do you have any reason to believe it's not original music?

This is just a guess, but it sounds like a variation on the show's theme song, by Calamine.

It sounds a little like The Pixies' Velouria, but of course it isn't.

I think thebigpoop is right. Didn't they play a rock version of the Calamine theme song at the end of every episode?

Sorry, meant Where Is My Mind?

FYI, there are lots of music threads over at the AdultSwim.com forums. (Unfortunately, the forums/site are less than user-friendly.)

Yep. Here's an episode on Google Video. The song comes in around 10:30.

That is the end of the instrumental version of the Sealab 2021 theme music. THE MYSTERY IS RESOLVED.

I was initially concerned that FenslerFilm were trying to do a parody of a parody or some shit, but this seems to be official advertising which is acceptable to me.

You mean this theme tune? It doesn't sound too similar :/

At the end of (almost) every episode, they do a different instrumental version of the tune. This is one of them.

It appears at the end of series 1 episode 3, Lost in Time. With gladiators.

Actually, it seems to be a different take of the same arrangement. They obviously like jammin.

Oh I see! Thanks. I'll check it out.

It's the closing theme to the show.

Calamine recorded several version of the opening theme, the closing theme, and a few of each in different musical styles. They also recorded a couple charming "scene changing" 4 note transitions... that were rarely used.

just to sew the subject up nicely.
